The Quantum Control Laboratory was formed in 2010 with the appointment of CI Biercuk to a continuing faculty position at the University of Sydney. Professor Biercuk has established a world-leading research effort on quantum control and quantum simulation with trapped ions, driving major efforts towards EQUS’ research programs.
The research undertaken in the Quantum Control Laboratory is focused on the development of practically useful techniques in quantum control likely to underpin the functionality of an entire generation of engineered quantum systems. Our research combines theory and experiment and leverages major international funding streams, and international collaborations facilitated via the group’s role within EQUS.
EQUS has formed a focal point for international attention on our efforts. It has drawn high-quality visiting students from the US, Germany and China, helped support applications for international funding, and formed a basis for our international media profile.
